Many Brazilians sometimes had to return to Brazil, for several reasons. And that can impact a great longing for some things that is only possible in Japan. In this article we will address what those who go from Japan to Brazil miss most of Japan.

  • Safety - One of the main factors of those who return to Brazil is the lack of security, that peace of going out without any worries on the street is over. Walk at any time, with money and cell phones in your pocket without danger of being mugged or shot;
  • Climate - Sometimes the person got quite used to the cold and snow in Japan, and going back to the hot and dry climate of Brazil, you may miss the cold and snow;
  • Japanese Language - Sometimes you get used to the words: gomen, yoroshiku, daijoubu, Otsukaresama, arigatou, hai, who ends up speaking by accident, or missing it;
  • Convenience stores - Who will not miss the effective 24-hour convenience stores where you could buy everything;
  • Hanbaiki - Automatic machines that sell everything, and are located even in deserted places are sorely missed;
  • Silence - Who does not miss that peace, where they can sleep during the day without hearing noises of sounds, cars, etc;
  • Living wages - Despite the high cost of living, who does not miss winning 7,000 Reais instead of 900. Japanese minimum wage varies between 200,000 to 400,000 yen. In addition to being able to buy electronics at a low cost;
  • food - There are countless different varieties of food, sweets and snacks. It is impossible not to miss something;
  • Standardized sidewalks and asphalt without holes in the streets.
  • Education - You will feel a lot! lots of! lots of! lack of it;
  • Have more job opportunities.
  • Hot tub - Almost every apartment and house in Japan has a bathtub, is there anything better than that?
  • Train Stations - Speed and comfort, and access to the whole country with train lines;
  • Take off the shoes - Possibly those who spent many years in Japan miss this;
  • Damp towels in restaurants and cafes to clean your hands;
  • Attendance and 1st class reception, in all service sectors in the country, regardless of location and public;
  • Japanese bathrooms extravagant, modern and smart in almost everywhere, including public ones;
  • Pay for some material purchased at the door when sent by mail
  • Onigiri - Delicious and cheap simple food;
  • Cities and Neighborhoods - There are thousands of places we can miss such as: Tokyo, Kyoto, Akihabara, Osaka, Shibuya, Shinjuko, Hokkaido and Okinawa

There are thousands of things that I can quote. I was unable to describe even 10% of the possible longings for Japan. Leave your comment of what you missed most or think you will miss most when you leave Japan.
